Valentina Kirinić: Software Product Quality and Evaluation Standards

Valentina Kirinić

About the Talk (slides)

The talk will cover two initial set of standards: ISO/IEC 9126: Software engineering – Product quality (Parts 1-4: quality model and metrics) and ISO/IEC 14598: Software product evaluation (Parts 1-6). New set of standards (under development) ISO/IEC 25000: Software Engineering – Software product Quality Requirements and Evaluation (SQuaRE) will be presented too.

We will (hopefully!) talk/discuss some aspects of using these standards:

  • Do we really need them?
  • Do we really use them?
  • Why no? Why yes? Problems and obstacles/benefits, when, how much it costs, examples, best practices,…
